Zverev retires mid-match, Nadal reaches the final of Roland Garros . for the 14th time
Compared to the early final of this year’s tournament, Rafael Nadal and Alexander Zverev gave the audience a very competitive match when the first set alone took 93 minutes.
In the tie-break series of set 1, Zverev had 4 set points but all failed to take advantage and lost with a score of 8-10. The second set saw Zverev’s powerful and varied attack when he scored 40 winners. However, making 8 double serve errors caused him to miss many opportunities to finish the set.
The physical torture of both sides ended when Zverev collapsed when the score was 6-6. The German tennis player flipped his ankle and had to give up in tears. Victory for Rafael Nadal on his 36th birthday helps him to reach the 14th French Open final and stand the chance to have the 22nd Grand Slam title of his career.
The Spaniard’s final opponent will be Casper Ruud – who beat Marin Cilic in the other semi-final with a score of 3-6, 6-4, 6-2, 6-2.
